Nights at the PRC

I'll be showing (and talking about) some of my plastic camera images this Wednesday evening at the Photographic Resources Center at Boston University as part of their "Nights at the PRC" program and also in collaboration with the ongoing Somerville Toy Camera Festival. The PRC is located at 832 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston and the program will run from six thirty to eight thirty pm. As many as four other photographers who use plastic or pinhole cameras will also be presenting their work that night. PRC "Nights" are open to the general public as well as PRC members, so if you're in the Boston area, please feel free to attend.

2016 Somerville Toy Camera Festival

Two of my images will be in the upcoming 2016 Somerville Toy Camera Festival which opens in three galleries this weekend. My images, "Around the Bend" and "Black Horse", were selected by juror Christopher James and will be at the Washington Street Art Center in (where else) Somerville. The opening for the Washington Street show is Saturday, September 10 from 7-9 pm. Regular gallery hours after the opening are Saturdays 12-4pm.

The images were created with a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera with a reversed lens. Extremely expired film was used (about fifty years out of date) for both of these images. "Around the Bend" is a pigment ink print and "Black Horse" is an acrylic transfer to aluminum with a high gloss epoxy coating.

If you're in the Boston area this weekend, please check out the show. There are around 120 images in three galleries so there's lots to see.
